CES: Brydge launches iPad Pro, iPad mini 4 backlit keyboard cases

The announcements are coming fast and furious from CES 2016, and one of them will be great news to owners of the iPad Pro or iPad mini 4. Brydge has launched the $189 BrydgePro for iPad Pro as well as the $99 BrydgeMini for iPad mini 4. Like the other keyboards from Brydge, these new models feature three-month rechargeable batteries, work through Bluetooth, and have a multi-angle hinge to allow for comfortable viewing.

The BrydgePro is now available for pre-order, weighing in at 1.6 pounds. It's 0.27 inches thick, and has a full-sized keyboard that's backlit at varying brightness levels. The BridgeMini is also backlit, and is available at a special pre-order price of $99. They'll be available in Silver, Gold and Space Gray. Expect to see the BrydgeMini for iPad mini 4 later this month, while you'll have to wait until April, 2016 for the BrydgePro. The first 1,000 folks who pre-order the BrydgePro will get a $99 leather carry case free of charge.
